IPhone App For Bar/Club

15 replies
Hello there

I have been asked to do an iPhone app for a bar/club where I live.

This is the first time doing one. Now as there are loads of bars where I live so I think this could be quite lucrative.

Now my questions are this:-

Is is best to learn how to do them your self? If so where is the best place to learn (WSO) or service to sign up to?

Or does anyone know of a great, cheap person to outsource to, so I can put my margin on top.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Darren

    Check out these threads I think they can provide everything you are looking for.

    1. For building native apps so far this looks like the most promising.

    2.

    2. But for to be able to offer mobile web apps this looks like a good choice too.

    3. Otherwise do an advanced search for "app builder" in the wso forum.

    I uses "Mr.Boston Official Mobile Bartender's Guide" app for checking out bars nearby and drinks offered. Check out the app and if you can make something like this then there is no need for outsourcing and if you can't search web for developers.

    If programming isn't your forte, consider checking out scriptlance and odesk for an outsourced programmer. About two years ago I was working on a location-based bar app that showed you happy hour deals on a map overlay - ended up letting the project go when competitors hit the market.

    Good luck!

  • I would outsource it to Odesk and try to convince more bar owners to get on board.

    Can I just clarify the difference between having a mobile website and a mobile app. A mobile website will help you generate your leads and a mobile app helps with building your brand and customer loyalty.

    When it comes to restaurants, bars and clubs a mobile website should be your core offering, with todays technology you dont need know any code when it comes to building a mobile website or mobile app.

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions,

      Was also thinking the difference between the two but thanks for clarifying it to us, jherewini.

    Honestly, you need to take a step back and ask what the restaurant/bar wants to achieve from having the app. It's very unlikely people are going to fill their phone with apps from local restaurants and bars and that's why in many cases I would recommend a mobile website as a more cost effective and more sensible solution.

    A mobile web app/mobile website can do most of the stuff a mobile app can do without the costs and it is probably going to get used a whole lot more. People looking to connect with a restaurant or bar are more likely to search Google in order to do so, it's very rare they are going to go looking in an app store for apps.

    Hi there
    They are right if you are not providing the right info people don't want anything useless in their phones. For pubs the app should have push notification of new events that help people informed of what happening,offers, new add ons etc. I can make one app for you in reasonable rate. I am available in Skype. let me know

      I would be happy to help you create an app for a bar. If we build it right we can just re-skin it for any bar you want. Check out some of the ICE apps I have done in the iTunes store
